-■^—^

first-named Alderman under each 
committee act as the chairman of 
such committee. 

Aid. Michaelson thereupon pre- 
sented the following statement, 
which was ordered published and 
placed on file: 

To His Honor, the Mayor, and 
Members of the City Council: 

Gentlemen — As one of the Ald- 
ermen representing one of the larg- 
est wards in the City of Chicago 
containing within its boundaries a 
constituency that exercises its 
rights in matters politically as in- 
dependents, and as a tax-payer and 
on behalf of thousands upon thou- 
sands of other tax-payers who join 
me in this protest, I hereby strenu- 
ously and vigorously protest against 
the method employed by a self- 
serving voluntary organization in 
forcing the consent of Aldermen 
duly elected by the constituents in 
their respective wards to abide by 
the selection of the standing com- 
mittees selected by the Committee 
on Committees, who were them- 
selves selected at a caucus held at 
•the direction of this voluntary, 
self-serving organization, at which 
place fully one-third of the Alder- 
men representing various wards in 
the City of Chicago were refused 
admittance, thereby deliberately 
and boldly disfranchising the vot- 
ers in these respective wards and 
denying them, through their repre- 
sentatives in the City Council, their 
right to have a voice in the selec- 
tion of the personnel of the stand- 
ing committees. 

I protest against the autocratic, 
arbitrary and dictatorial action as 
an open defiance of the rights of 
the people who are entitled to rep- 
resentation in all matters of im- 
portance affecting the interests of 
the City of Chicago. I protest 
against this wilful violation of the 
letter and spirit of the law. 

This Council should take the 
initiative in demanding the en- 
forcement of the rights of the peo- 



ple through their representatives in 
the City Council to have a voice in 
all matters affecting the interosts 
of the City. 

The law of the State of Illinois 
gives to the City Council of Chi- 
cago the absolute right to deter- 
mine its method of procedure in 
the conduct of its business. The 
selection of the standing commit- 
tees through whose agency fully 
nine-tenths of the business of the 
City Council is conducted is a mat- 
ter of the highest importance to 
the proper performance of the 
functions of the City Council. 

Can it be said that to disfran- 
chise fully one-third of the repre- 
sentatives of the people at a private 
caucus called by a voluntary or- 
ganization without authority of law 
but through the use of its lash is 
conducive of the best interests of 
the tax-payers of the City of Chi- 
cago? Can it be said that to coerce 
through fear of political annihila- 
tion a number of Aldermen to agree 
to abide by the selection of the 
standing committees by the Com- 
mittee on Committees, that this is 
the popular form of republican 
government of the people, for the 
people, and by the people? 

This method is subversive of 
good government conducive to 
anarchy, wholly un-American and 
destructive of all for which real 
representative government stands. 

I, therefore, make this protest so 
that it may be published in the 
Proceedings of this Council. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) M. A. Michaelson. 

The question being put on the 
motion of Aid. Richert, the motion 
prevailed, by yeas and nays as fol-

Department of Finance,) 
Chicago, April 20, 1916.J 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and 
Aldermen in City Council A5- 
semhled: 

Gentlemen— Herewith we beg to 
transmit for consideration of your 
Honorable Body, form of ordinance 
prepared by the Corporation Coun- 
sel to authorize the commencement 
of condemnation proceedings to ac- 
quire property on the northeast 
corner of 69th street and Yates 
avenue for a water pumping station 
site. The acquisition of said prem- 
ises for this purpose has been 
recommended by the Commissioner 
of Public Works, and the Comp- 
troller has felt that better prices

NINTH WARD. 

Aid. Vanderbilt and Block pre- 
sented the following order, which 
was, on motion, duly passed: 

Whereas, There is a pronounced 
increase in the general taxes of the 
City of Chicago, which is evidenced 
by a great number of small prop- 
erty owners lodging complaints 
with the Aldermen; and 

Whereas, These complaints are 
based upon an increase of from 25 
per cent to 100 per cent over the 
taxes paid last year; and 

Whereas, If this increase was 
applicable to all the tax payers of 
the City of Chicago, the revenue 
the city derived from taxes for 
corporate purposes should be in- 
creased a like per cent; and 

Whereas, It -appears that the 
city does not receive a correspond- 
ing increase in revenue by this in- 
crease of taxes, evidenced by the 
enormous increase of tax bills of 
small property owners; and 

Whereas, There seems to be just 
grounds for charges that the taxes 
are not uniformly spread and that 
rank injustice is shown to the end 
that the party who can least afford 
to bear the burden of taxation is 
loaded up with this increase; 

Therefore, be it Ordered, That 
the Mayor appoint a committee of 
five (5) aldermen, whose duty it 
shall be to conduct an investigation, 
first, upon the just and equitable 
spread of our general taxes, and 
second, to make such recommenda- 
tion as will make it imperative for 
each citizen to bear his just share 
of taxation. 

Aid. Vanderbilt and Block pre- 
sented the following orders, which 
were, on motion, duly passed: 

Ordered, That the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works be and

Veto of Order: Permit to Robert 
Stewart (Sign). 

His Honor the Mayor submitted 
the following veto message: 

Op^fige of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, May 8, 1916.} 

To the Honorable the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith, 
without my approval, an order 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
April 26, 1916, and appearing on 
page 4431 of the Journal of the 
Council Proceedings of said date. 
I withhold my approval of the said 
order because it does not conform 
to the requirements of the City 
Code, in that it does not make any 
provision for the termination of 
the privilege granted. I have pre- 
pared and submit herewith a cor- 
rect form for an order of the 
character desired, and respectfully 



recommend that the vote by which 
the said order was passed be recon- 
sidered; that the order I submit 
herewith be substituted for the one 
I have vetoed and passed by your 
Honorable Body. 

Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Healy moved to reconsider 
the vote by which said order, vetoed 
by His Honor the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Healy moved to substitute 
the order submitted with said veto 
message for said vetoed order. 

The motion prevailed. 

The question being put on the 
passage of said substitute order, the 
motion prevailed. 

The following is said order as 
passed: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner 
of Public Works be and he is hereby 
directed to issue a permit to Robert 
Stew^art to erect and maintain a tin 
sign, 8' X 3', across the sidewalk in 
front of premises known as 5403 
South Ashland avenue. Said sign 
shall be erected and maintained in 
accordance with all rules and regu- 
lations of the Department of Public 
Works. This privilege shall be 
subject to termination by the Mayor 
at any time in his discretion. 

Veto of Order: Removal of Water 
Meter. 

also. 
The following veto message : 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, May 8, 1916.) 
To the Honorable, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 
Gentlemen — I return herewith 
without my approval an order 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
April 26, 1916, and appearing on 
page 45 of the printed Journal of 



May 8, 1916. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



53 



the Proceedings of the City Council 
of said date, in which the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works is directed 
to remove water meter from 4350 
Lawrence avenue and to charge for 
water consumed thereon on a front- 
age basis. My reason for withhold- 
ing my approval of this order is 
that charging for water on a front- 
age basis, instead of by meter, re- 
sults in a financial loss to the City 
of Chicago. I do not believe that 
an order resulting in a financial 
loss to the City of Chicago should 
be permitted to pass until the 
Finance Committee has had an op- 
portunity to thoroughly investigate 
the conditions surrounding the pas- 
sage of orders of this kind. 

I therefore respectfully request 
that the vote by which the said or- 
der was passed be reconsidered and 
that the same be referred to the 
Finance Committee for investiga- 
tion. 

Respectfully yours, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Healy moved to reconsider 
the vote by which, said order, ve- 
toed by His Honor the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Healy moved to refer said 
order to the Committee on Finance. 
The motion prevailed.

Memorial Day: Proclamation. 

ALSO, 

The following proclamation, 
which was ordered published and 
placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,| 
Chicago, May 5, 1916. ( 

The beautiful custom of strewing 
flowers on the graves of the de- 
parted defenders of the nation, re- 
newed each year on Decoration 
Day, originated in an order of Gen- 
eral John A. Logan when he was 
Commander-in-Chief of the Grand 
Army of the Republic. 

In view of the establishment of 
the institution by a famous soldier 
of Illinois and the further fact that 
so many brave and loyal sons of 
this state laid their lives, health and 
personal comfort as a sacrifice on 
the altar of their country's need, it 
is indeed fitting and desirable that 
the patriotic citizenship of Chicago 
join in this memorial to our heroes 
who have gone before. 

Therefore, I. William Hale 
Thompson, Mayor of the City of 
Chicago, proclaim Tuesdav, Mav 
30th, 1916, as Memorial Day, and 
hereby order that all departments 
of the City Government be closed 
on that day, with the exception of 
the Police, Fire, Electrical and 
Health Departments, which shall 
remain open for the transaction of 
necessary public business. 

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor. 



Children's Day: Proclamation. 

ALSO, 

The following proclamation, 
which was ordered published and 
placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor, | 

Chicago, April 27, 1916. [ 

Whereas, There are in the City 

of Chicago many poor children who 

from force of circumstances are 

compelled to act in the capacity of 



May 8, 1916. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



57 



newsboys, etc., in order to eke out 
a meager existence, and 

Whereas, It has been the usual 
custom during the last thirty-one 
years, through the benevolence of 
our newspapers and citizens in gen- 
eral, to give these children an out- 
ing picnic, and such an outing will 
be given this year under the aus- 
pices of the Volunteers of America 
at Washington Park, and 

Whereas, The 22nd day of June 
has this year been selected as the 
day for holding said annual picnic, 

Therefore, I, William Hale 
Thompson, Mayor of the City of 
Chicago, do hereby proclaim the 
22nd day of June as Children's Day, 
and earnestly recommend its ob- 
servance to the citizens at large. I 
call upon them to support the 
project of giving the children of 
Chicago a happy day's outing among 
the trees and flowers of one of our 
city parks, thus bringing into many 
clouded lives some of the gladness 
and sunshine so freely enjoyed by 
children in happier circumstances. 

Furthermore: I appoint Major 
General Edward Fielding to be the 
Director General of the day. 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Whereas, There appears to be 
danger of a break in diplomatic 
relations between the United States 
and certain European nations which 
would create a critical situation 
that might easily lead to war; and 

Whereas, We believe that it is 
possible to adjudicate disputes 
between the United States and 
Eurqpean nations which would not 
endanger the peaceful relations 
now existing between the United 
States and said nations;- therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That we, the members 
of the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, expressing, as we believe, 
the sentiment of the overwhelming 
majority of the people of Chicago 
and the Middle West, urge the 
President and Congress of the 
United States to use every reason- 
able means to avoid any break in 
the diplomatic relations between 
the United States and European 
nations, and to maintain the peace- 
ful relations existing between the 
United States and all other coun- 
tries; and, be it further 

Resolved, That a copy of these

and to each of the United States 
Senators and Representatives repre- 
senting the State of Illinois.

THIRTY-THIRD WARD. 

Aid. Buck presented the following 
order, which was, on motion, duly 
passed: 

Ordered, That the General Su- 
perintendent of Police report to 
the Council at its next regular 
meeting, why and by what au- 
thority he has failed to enforce 
an order passed by the Council 
February 7, 1916, page 3180 of 
the Journal, directing the Second 
Deputy Superintendent of Police 
to investigate cabarets and report 
to the Council weekly; also why 
he has failed to enforce an order 
passed by the Council February 
14, 1916, page 3270 of the Jour- 
nal, requiring similar reports 
concerning certain South State 
street theaters. 

Aid. Buck presented the follow- 
ing order, which was ordered pub- 
lished and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Judiciary: 

Whereas, The Chicago Code 
provides in section 1625 that no 
moving picture shall be shown 
without a permit; in section 1626 
that no permit shall be issued 
until such picture shall have been 
censored and in section 1627 as 
follows : 

"If a picture or series of 
pictures for the showing or ex- 
hibition of which an application 
for a permit is made is immoral 
or obscene or portrays any 
riotous, disorderly or other un- 



lawful scene, or has a tendency 
to disturb the public peace, it 
shall be the duty of the General 
Superintendent of Police to re- 
fuse such permit;" and 

Whereas, Section four of the 
police reorganization ordinance 
provides as follows: 

"The Second Deputy Superin- 
tendent of Police shall not be a 
member of the police force. 
Under direction of the General 
Superintendent of Police, he shall 
be charged with : 

"(8) The censoring of moving 
pictures and public performances 
of all kinds;" and 

Whereas, There is now on ex- 
hibition in the City of Chicago a 
moving picture entitled "The 
Little Girl Next Door," which has 
not been censored in the manner 
required by the ordinances of the 
City of Chicago and which is 
lewd, immoral and obscene and 
which portrays riotous, disor- 
derly and unlawful scenes; and 

Whereas, A legend is posted in 
front of the theater where the 
said moving picture is on exhibi- 
tion alleging that minors are not 
admitted, but notwithstanding 
which minors were admitted in 
numbers on the first day of the 
production; and 

Whereas, W^hether or not

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, May 15, 1916.] 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I have the honor to 
transmit herewith a communication 
from the Superintendent of the 
House of Correction in reference to 
the plan heretofore considered by 
your Honorable Body of expending 
the surplus money earned by the 
House of Correction in behalf of 
needy families of the prisoners.

mulation of a surplus after meeting 
expenses, and I know of no better 
end to which this money may be put 
than by expending it to assist fami- 
lies of prisoners, who by the incar- 
ceration of a husband or a father 
are left without means of support 
and dependent upon charity for the 
necessities of life. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Dear Sir — Agreeable to your re-

proposal made at the conference in

An agreement having been en-

western University, within which it 
is made unlawful to sell intoxicating 
liquor, and the city having omitted 
to keep this agreement on the 
ground that there were no funds to 
meet the expense of a survey; and 
we having submitted to the Cor- 
poration Counsel a letter from the 
City Treasurer definitely indicating 
a particular fund to the credit of 
the Department of Public Works 
from which such expense could 
properly be met; if the city is still 
unwilling to determine whether 
there are twenty-nine saloons 
within the prohibited territory for 
which the Mayor has granted 
licenses to conduct business ille- 
gally, as this organization claims, 
we, representing citizens and tax- 
payers, will pay the expense of a 
survey so as to remove the only 
reason given by the officials of the 
city for refusing to have this 
measurement made. 

We now ask that a reliable sur- 
veyor be selected and directed by 
the City to make the measurement 
without delay. 

Yours truly, 
Chicago Law and Order League, 
By Arthur Burrage Farwell, 

President. 

In connection with the foregoing

and that consideration thereof be 
deferred. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is said minority 
report : 

Chicago, May 15, 1916. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the 

City of Chicago in City Council 

Assembled: 

The undersigned, a minority of 
your Committee on Judiciary, to 
whom was re-ferred (April 26, 1916, 
page 4475 of the Council Proceed- 
ings) an ordinance providing for 
disconnection from the City of Chi- 
cag of certain territory described 
as that part, north of Grand avenue, 
of the west half (W. 1/2) of the west 
half (W. 1/2) of .the southwest 
quarter (S. W. %) of section thirty 
(30), Township .forty (40), Range 
thirteen (13), east of the third 
principal meridian, etc., having had 
the same under advisement, beg 
leave to report and recommend as 
follows : 

The said ordinance, after having 
been adopted by the Council, was 
reconsidered April 26, 1916, and re- 
ferred again to the Committee. 
Petitions from associations of tax- 
payers and a petition signed by 
more than 300 residents of neigh- 
boring territory, were submitted to 
the Council protesting against the 
disconnection of this territory from 
the city. A public hearing was held 
by the committee at its meeting 
May 8, 1916, at which a large dele- 
gation of residents of contiguous 
territory protested with vigor 
against the ordinance. The com- 
mittee voted overwhelmingly to 
recommend that the ordinance be 
placed on file. 

At a meeting of the committee 
held March 15, 1916, Alderman 
Powers moved to' reconsider the 
action of May 8. This was done in 
the absence of any delegation of 
the persons who had protested, 
heedless of the protests that had 
been made and notwithstanding 



that both Aldermen of the ward in 
which the territory lies were op- 
posed to the ordinance. 

The majority of the committee 
thereupon voted down a motion to 
hold a further hearing, but promptly 
passed a motion to recommend the 
ordinance for passage. 

During the hearing it was not at 
any time shown that the city would 
gain any advantage as a result of 
the proposed disconnection, but on 
the other hand it was shown that 
the city would lose large sums an- 
nually in taxes on the property 
involved. The claim was made that 
the owner of the parcel of land in 
question needed relief from taxation 
and this was the only reason alleged 
for the action of the majority of 
the committee. 

On the other hand it was shown 
that the land has increased many 
times in value over the amount 
paid for it by the present owner 
and that it is now valued at many 
thousands of dollars. 

The minority of your subcom- 
mittee fails to see why the owner 
of a tract of valuable land should 
be the beneficiary of special legisla- 
tion exempting him from taxation 
at the expense of the city. There- 
fore it is recommended by the 
undersigned that the said ordinance 
be placed on file. 

Respectfully submitted,

Chicago, May 11, 1916. 
To the Committee on Health: 

Gentlemen — The undersigned, 
constituting the suib-committee ap- 
pointed by your Honorable Body to 
investigate the matter of the re- 
habilitation of the dog pound, beg 
to report that, after a personal in- 
spection of the existing dog pound 
and a study of the matter of its re- 
habilitation, we are of the opinion 
that a new dog pound should be 
erected for the reason that the ex- 
isting dog pound is in a totally un- 
fit condition to care for the dogs 
committed there, and that it is en- 
tirely inadequate, if in fit condition, 
to meet the needs of the institution. 

We therefore recommend that the 
Committee on Finance be requested 
to provide an appropriation of 
$10,000 — the amount required ac- 
cording to estimate made by the 
City Architect provided the labor is 
furnished by the House of Correc- 
tion — for the erection of a new dog 
pound.

To His Honor, the Mayor, and City 
Council, City of Chicago: 

Genti,emen — The great amount 
of publicity accorded the boy bandit 
and the wayward girl during the^ 
past year should have, by this time, : 
reached every home in the city, and 
the awful conditions revealed 
should have opened the eyes of 
those upon whom devolves the duty 
of bringing up the children right. 

Those who are willing to see 
with only half the eye will ac- 
knowledge that the home is tho 
first and proper place to look for 
the causes that lead young boys 
and girls, into vice and crime. We 
need more respect for our own 
security and civilization and the

beneficent discipline which shall 
reach youth when its character is 
in a formative stage. The American 
youth resipects nothing much be- 
sides its own appetite and impulse. 
The pendulum has .swung too far 
from the restraint. 

The home must be made the cor- 
ner stone in the development of 
children and the dangers of wrong 
doing and the value of right living 
must be impressed upon their 
minds. Parents should have the 
time and inclination to get close to 
the children and should supervise 
their spare hours, direct their 
energy and exact , respect and 
prompt obedience, and should know 
what company the children keep. 
Idleness is the devil's workshop, 
and the portrayal of crime in 
theaters and reading of novels will 
not^ promote good character. In 
Europe we were not permitted out 
on the streets after dark or at 
amusement places unattended. 

While these minors are fascinated 
by the soft lights and glitter of the 
cabarets and fox-trot in cafes, and 
unbridled sport in pool-rooms and 
basement clubs, or roam about the 
streets at will, is it not time to 
inquire where their parents are 
and what their mothers are doing? 
Public officials should not tolerate 
these conditions! Parents who per- 
mit it are vicious. Why does the 
publicity of these vicious resorts 
■and pitfalls not arouse public senti- 
ment against the debauching of our 
youths and why does not clean 
public spirit rise to throttle im- 
morality that poses in the guise of 
innocent amusement? 

We are supporting a number of 
special courts, a police department, 
a costly school system and a whole 
string of public welfare bureaus, 
social service, juvenile and truant 
officers, moral commission and 
other agencies under both city and 
county authorities at great cost. 
These should more than suffice to 
control all these public places if 



' they did their duties. Every po- 
liceman should know all the con- 
ditions on his beat and report all 
violations. 

In addition, we have a large num- 
ber of public parks, playgrounds, 
public dance halls, social centers 
and surveys, school gymnasiums 
with inspectors, superintendents 
and nurses, and dancing masters, all 
to amuse the young, and now the 
Mayor suggests a sport board and to 
place pool tables and picture shows 
in schools and churches and some 
more recreation centers, more 
pleasure, more amusement and 
more sport, thus training people to 
expect and depend upon getting all 
things "free". 

Are we not supplying amusement 
instead of education? This is all 
superficial and very expensive! Is 
it not good deal waste and will all 
these expensive recreations check 
the shameless lawlessness? 

What about the tolerance of 
school strikes and resistance to 
authority? And does not co-educa- 
tion breed vice? 

The youth does not need more 
amusement and recreation, but 
needs some preveritive medicine. 
Prevention is better and cheaper 
than an expensive and doubtful 
cure. Do we not realize more 
vividly than usual that there is 
something urgently needed to stimu- 
late self-control, respect for au- 
thority, a sense of responsibility 
and obedience? Parents should be 
held strictly to account by the 
courts, and no minor should be 
tried without the presence of both 
parents, and if parents are guilty 
of contributory delinquency, they, 
and not the children, should be put 
on probation or fined, and warned 
that in case of repeated offense, the 
state will step in and take the 
children away. And incorrigible 
children should be reported by 
parents to the court. This ought to, 
and would go far toward insuring 
improvements. This is not now the

practice and many offenders con- 
sider the trial a farce and their 
manner of conduct in court shows 
it. They mock justice. Sparing 
the rod is .producing the bandit and 
gunman. Have we not gone to an 
extreme in undue leniency in the 
punishment of offenders? The 
plea of "give me a chance" is bunk! 
Every one has a chance to do right 
or wrong and the leniency of our 
courts should not turn into a costly 
vaudeville. Some of the Judges 
are public disappointments! The 
law should be obeyed and enforced. 
State's Attorney Hoyne and Judge 
Fry and others lay much of the 
blame on judges, politicians, the cry 
sisters and maudlin sympathizers, 
that the parole system aids crime 
and Judge Bazin of Montreal re- 
cently described their salutary 
methods where the offender knows 
he oannot escape the law, if he is 
caught. 

Those were the sentiments and 
convictions expressed at our last 
meeting by parents assembled to 
discourage the useless wastes of 
taxes.

Office of the Mayor,) 
Chicago, May 22, 1916.] 

To the Citizens of Chicago: 

At the suggestion of a Committee 
of our fellow-citizens, the Mayors 
of many of the leading cities have 
united in a call to the country at 
large to declare Saturday, June 3rd, 
a National Preparedness Day, and 
to unite their citizens in a Pre- 
paredness Parade which will fit- 
tingly express the desire of loyal 
Americans to bring about adequate 
preparedness for a final and lasting 
peace. 

As Mayor of the City of Chicago, 
I endorse this plan and call upon 
all good citizens to join in this 
demonstration, either as partic- 
ipants in the parade or as specta- 
tors. 

I recommend the use of the 
American Flag as a universal badge 
of preparedness, to be carried by 
all marchers and spectators. 

I recommend that the American 
Flag be displayed upon buildings 
and wherever possible throughout 
the city during the week of the 
Preparedness Parade, commencing 
Monday, May 29th. 

I recommend to all employers 
that, insofar as their business will

permit, they allow their employes 
and representatives who will take 
part in the parade the necessary 
leave of absence. 

I am convinced that the Chicago 
demonstration will fittingly express 
the loyalty and patriotism of our 
citizens and their desire for ade- 
quate preparedness to continue the 
peace and prosperity of the Union.

The following communication, 
which was ordered published and 
placed on file: 

Holy Cross Rectory,] 
Chicago, May 20, 1916.f 
To the Mayor and Members of the 

City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago, Chicago, Illinois: 

Gentlemen — My attention has 
been called to an alleged affidavit 
presented to your Honorable Body 
by Alderman Hrubec, in which a 
malicious, unjust and false attack 
has been made upon Mr. Joseph J. 
Elias, a resident of my parish. 

I have been the pastor of the 
Holy Cross Lithuanian Roman 
Catholic parish since the organi- 
zation of the parish in 1904, and 
during all the time that I have been 
pastor I also have been treasurer 
of the parish and custodian of all 
the parish funds. 

I have never had any parish 
funds on deposit in Mk. Elias' bank 
on account of the fact that he never 
desired checking account, his bank 
being only savings bank. Mr. Elias 
never had anything to do with the 
handling of the parish funds, and 
I am the only person to make a re- 
port or accounting of the same. 

Now, in justice to Mr. Elias and 
for the information of your Hon- 
orable Body, I wish to state that 
Mr. Joseph J. Elias is a most hon- 



orable and respected person among 
our people, not only in this com- 
munity or state but in the nation. 
He has rendered very valuable ser- 
vices as one of the parish trustees 
for the past three years and gave a 
great deal of his valuable time in 
the supervision of the construction 
of our new church which was com- 
pleted a year ago. 

Yours very respectfully, 

(Signed) Rev. Alex. Skrypkon, 

Pastor of the Holy Cross Parish.
